"The Makers" - Stories of Trailblazing Women

By the early 1980’s, about half of college graduates in the United States were women, paving the way for opportunity. But in spite of women’s strides in educational achievement, only about 21% of Fortune 500 CEOs are women and only about 17% of board seats are held by women.

In a world where we are increasingly aware that diversity not only brings better team results,  but also better corporate profitability, those statistics are sobering for all of us.

The site “Makers.com” is about how those statistics get changed. Makers.com is a digital media site featuring video accounts by women who blazed a trail to leadership and impact.  From Hillary Clinton to Ellen Degeneres, they are stories of courage and inspiration.

With each one I watch, I realize that the common thread between these stories is passion.

Did they all have ambition to be famous?
Did they always get it right the first time?
Did they always feel comfortable as pioneers?

No, but what every single one had is passion—the passion to go after their vision.  Whether your passion is motherhood, saving the environment, or finding an end to breast cancer, the secret ingredient to blazing trails is passion. Check out Makers.com, the largest collection of videos about trailblazing women and be inspired to find your passion!
